    The Prophetess

    I found the characters less beveilable than in the Crimson Cord, both Deborah, and especially her daughter, seemed like very empowered women, with a strong desire to rule the men in their lives....I believe the Biblical account show Deborah as a reluctant, but capable leader. The fictional daughter seemed too blood-thirsty to be believable to me.

    This is a remarkable biblical fiction story!

    I have always liked Deborah. I know that most of this story is a fictional account since there is very little information about her in the bible. This story is so well crafted and presented though that I could see it as a very believable scenario. The development of the danger from Sisera made the fear that the Israelites and Heber’s family felt, palpable for me. I was also able to understand their frustration with having to wait for God’s timing to take action. There were two things that were address that I’ve always wondered about. The first one of them was, how did a woman become judge over Israel? The second was where did the Israelites get the weapons they needed to wage a war against Sisera? I know that the answers to these questions that are given in this book are only the author’s ideas. But to my way of thinking they make sense. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Great biblical fiction!

    First off, I must say that Jill Eileen Smith did a great job with this book. With so little information about Deborah, I can only imagine the huge challenge writing this book must have been. Of course, she took lots of liberties with the characters and their background, but who could blame her! I think this book actually was my first biblical fiction ever. I loved how this book threw me back in time and depicted the lives of the people living in the Promised Land at the time of king Jabin's reign. The characters are very believable and realistic. As the author says in a note at the end of the book, Deborah can appear a little too perfect in Judges, but her novel really shows her as a human being with her flaws as well as her strengths. I think that even if we don't necessarily imagine Deborah the same way Jill Eileen Smith does, the book can be highly enjoyable for everyone. Of course, none of us knows for sure how her life was, but this version is a great inspiration and gives us a glimpse of what her life might have been. Thanks to the author for providing me a copy of the book. It did not affect my review.
